I am self taught on many things. I also come here to learn, and share. There are plenty of helpful experts on this site.
I promote IPM, I believe that pest will be best but the best defense is healthy plants. While I like safer products, there is no reason to use something as far off label as Laundry Detergent for pest control. The EPA is pretty liberal with Minimum Risk Pesticides but there are still rules.
There are also some very effective minimum risk products out there for insects. I will stick to them and charge accordingly.
